I've just noticed the following message and thought that other people that host their websites with iServe might be interested:

Orcon hosting will be migrated to new storage on 29/10/13 23:00-23:30. While being migrated, websites may be offline for 5-10mins

Welcome to the new world :-)

We will be putting more Hosting-related details of both planned and any outage information on the Orcon website just as soon as we are aware of it.

No problem :-) it might be a little clunky/manual to start while we settle on a format etc then we will make it slicker a more automated and consistant....

I think this maybe related to some of these upgrades over the last few weeks, but none of my wordpress websites can connect to the ftp server. THey were working fine a week or so ago.

Wordpress comes up with Failed to connect to FTP Server ftp.###.co.nz:21 , when trying to update plugins. The ftp details are fine, as I can login over regular FTP. Anyone haveing similar problems.

I think it is related to these recent updates so is relevant, as I had another problem which I phoned support about related to the updates.

I just tried updating  Wordpress blog and received "ERROR: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct." so it's not just you.

This thread is specifically about a yet-to-happen Planned Storage Migration on the Orcon Hosting platform, not anything "recent" that has happened. Post here but the thread title is irrelevant to your post so casual users will not realise your question is even here.

If you have a specific question relating to an issue you are having then best to start its own thread, as per the site guidelines...

Thanks for confirming  that. A pity Orcons reply above wasn't helpful. They should have said, we will look into that for you, but you should also open a new thread, even though the question was really directed to orcon staff directly. I am however certain it is something to these migration issues which this topic is about, as they have been doing them for some time, and I do believe this is relevant to this thread. It is a concern that these problems are occurring with this migration and upgrades. The last migration outage about 10 days ago was discussed on this thread http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=82&topicid=130783&page_no=3  
I am still having trouble getting support, and have an email ticket that hasn't been answered for well over a week, so getting support isn't easy. When they do reply, they do always apologise for the delay, but how long should a reply to a support ticket  take?

Perhaps this thread should be renamed Hosting Migration and Resulting Issues instead, as it hasn't just been related to wordpress, rather than people opening up new threads for each little migration problem they have encountered.

EDIT: I have setup a thread for this for people to report issues they are having.
